Default The doll factory - 15-05-2010, 22:18

Abandoned for a few years, old fashioned for many years.

Many people worked here to make ceramic dolls out of plaster, just with their own hands.
The only machine was the oven.

What the reason is why its left abandoned?
I'm not sure, maybe just the fact that in China they cost almost nothing.

Also check the pano: http://www.urban-travel.org/documents/303.html

Brilliant find, not many doll factories left that still use pottery/porcelain, rare indeed.

Great shots, can almost feel the plaster dust.


Please do not adjust your mind, there is a slight problem with reality.
